Item 4. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.

(a) Previous Independent Accountants

On May 12, 2003, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC”) informed H&R Block, Inc. (the “Company”) that it has declined to stand for re-election as the independent accountants for the Company upon completion of the audit of the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2003 and services related thereto.

The reports of PwC on the financial statements for the past two fiscal years contained no adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principle.

In connection with its audits for the two most recent fiscal years and through May 12, 2003, the date of this Form 8-K, there have been no disagreements with PwC on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements if not resolved to the satisfaction of PwC would have caused them to make reference thereto in their report on the financial statements for such years.

During the two most recent fiscal years and through May 12, 2003, the date of this Form 8-K, there have been no reportable events (as defined in Regulation S-K Item 304(a)(1)(v)). The registrant has requested that PwC furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the above statements. A copy of such letter dated May 16, 2003, is attached hereto as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.

(b)     New Independent Accountants.

In accordance with the Audit Committee Charter, the Company’s Audit Committee will select the independent public accountants for the fiscal year ending April 30, 2004, subject to ratification by the full Board of Directors and shareholder ratification at the September 2003 annual shareholders meeting.

Item 7. Financial Statements and Exhibits.

(c)     Exhibits. The following exhibit is filed with this report:

Exhibit 16.1 — Letter from PwC to the Securities and Exchange Commission dated May 16, 2003.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
